Mike Cornette: Jason Charos
Tonight on All Night Jazz, the “Other Nine to Five,” join us for music and conversation with trumpeter Jason Charos and his quintet. Jason is a Gibbs High graduate currently studying music at the University of Miami’s Frost School of Music, as is his bandmate, saxophonist David Mason. Rounding out the front line of this band is saxophonist Kendrick McAllister, a Ruth Eckerd Youth Band alumnus who is currently studying music at SUNY Purchase in New York. All three were scholarship winners from local jazz associations before embarking on their college careers. Mike Cornette hosts. The Jason Charos Quintet performs at Studio @ 620 in St. Petersburg on Friday, June 28th. More information is at thestudioat620.org. The adventure begins tonight at nine on WUSF 89.7.
